What are my chances at the University of Chicago and Northwestern?

I'm really interested in a smaller liberal arts college, but I want to apply to U of Chicago and Northwestern because those are my boyfriend's top 2 schools, and I'd like to have the option open. I'm a junior right now, interested in communications/public relations. -4.26 GPA, but I'm guessing it'll go down to 4.17 or so by the end of this year. -I've taken every honors class possible, but no APs yet. Next year I'll have AP Statistics, AP Government, and AP Literature. -Next year I'll be interning for a radio station. -Member of National Honor Society; plan to be an officer next year -Member of Speech/Debate Team; plan to be an officer next year -Have done 2 school plays a year since freshman year. -2020 SAT Score; 600 math, 730 reading and 690 writing (I know the math is low for the average at these schools) What do you think? Also, I don't know if it makes a difference, but I have held down a job with 10-20 hours a week for more than a year.

Include community activities and leadership roles. Offer variety. Other than that it looks pretty good. As always dont put all your eggs in one basket. Good Luck!
